Donald Trump took to Truth Social to share a blizzard of memes flattering himself, bashing Joe Biden and claiming the ‘deep state’ is preparing to destroy him, filling his page with fake posts and sometimes extreme imagery – including understood phrases nodding to the QAnon movement.
The ex-president’s dive into the dark world of right-wing meme-making comes after he doubled down on his questionable claims about Hunter Biden’s laptop story and insisted that new Revelations on the story’s cover mean that the results of the last election should be cancelled.
“So now it’s conclusively shown that the FBI BURIED HUNTER BIDEN’S LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION, knowing that if they hadn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won. the 2020 presidential election,'” he wrote.
“REMEDY: Declare the legitimate winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 election irretrievably compromised and call a new election, immediately!”
In the latest development in the fallout from the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, the president has hired the former Florida solicitor general to represent him going forward.
